Finally received my copy of Holy Mountain. Someone once asked me to recommend a movie like it….I said nothing.
Mandela will never, ever be your minstrel. Over the next few days you will try so, so hard to make him something he was not, and you will fail. You will try to smooth him, to sandblast him, to take away his Malcolm X. You will try to hide his anger from view.
Alhamdulillah for the fact that Mandela lived until 95, that he saw his children grow into parents themselves and reveled in the fact that his nation rose up against the thrusts of colonialistic apartheid. He lived a good life and God willing, he lives an even more promising afterlife.
